TECHNICAL SPEC

  • Control up to 128 DMX lighting channels
  • DMX-512 protocol support
  • Loxone Link for connecting to the Miniserver
  • Compact housing for rail-mounts
  • Dimensions: 35.5 x 88 x 57 mm (2 TE)
  • Minimal power consumption
  • Power requirements 24VDC
  • Protection: IP20
  • Ambient temperature: 0 to 50°C

Every DMX output can accommodate values between 0 and 100%. These values are rescaled to the range from 0 to 255.

INSTALLATION

  • Mount DMX Extension on the DIN rail
  • Connect 24VDC power supply, but do not switch on until the whole installation is completed
    (We recommend looping power through the Miniserver)
  • Connect to the Loxone Link
  • Connect the DMX connector to a DMX control device
  • Note: If it is the last extension, terminate the Loxone Link with a 120Ω resistor
    (Included with the Miniserver)
  • Turn on the power supply
  • After a few seconds, the left LED will flash green if the DMX Extension is already configured, or orange if not

GENERAL NOTES ON WIRING

  • Use CAT7 cable for the DMX BUS. The protection that CAT7 offers provide ample shielding from any interference and will provide you with the best connection possible.
  • The cable must not be longer than 500 metres
  • The DMX cable must go from receiver to receiver (daisy chained i.e. bus topology)
  • The Loxone Link must be terminated with a 120Ω resistor
  • It is crucial that you do not power up a DMX extension with only the Loxone Link connector in. This was cause damage to the link chip and render the device damaged and unusable.
